concerned about, people are concerned about health care costs and education costs. and to a lesser extent, when economic growth is stronger as it was later in the bush years maybe they're concerned about issues related to the bottom and so. education and health care and sort of the broader challenge of globalization, those things loom incredibly large and the republican imagination and those are not issues republicans like to talk about. this is where compassion conservatism didn't emerge any backing to emerge in the late 1990s from a period when bill clinton had been something republicans up and down washington for four, six years. and the whole point of bush's him was to craft a republican party that had something to say about education. that's something to say about health care. you can go back and said, i think justifiably, that something like the prescription drugs bill was too big, cost too much, should've bee been paid fn someone been paid for and so wanted you to make similar critiques with no child left behind by the republican party will never get back to the wilderness if it ju

for education. we also must insure economic development and political progress, political development. these things and these principles are very important, and this is why the arab spring took place at the end of the day. and i believe that such principles are still not respected in our countries, such freedoms are not yet respected. we still have a long way to go. regardless of what the west thinks or does not think, we don't really -- we should not really mind what the west says. the west can speak and say, and we also can speak and say whatever we think. however, i believe that the reform process must start from us, must start from the arab world. so that we would bring back the human dignity to each citizen. we must respect individuals, and we must not force any citizen to do anything that he or she does not want to do. i believe that it's the arab spring happened because of the oppression that we were living under. that oppression took away our freedoms, our liberties, our human rights, and that is why i believe that we need this revolution, we needed this revolution, and we nee

in the severely mentally ill to obtain them in the first place. we must export educational programs that promote responsible gun ownership while addressing ways to go to court by gun violence culture in our country. we incorporate mental health records, we must also make sure and provides a commitment to goodness of mental health services to those in need on the front end. i understand there's a population of american citizens who's ever experienced with a gun has been able to the our individuals like myself as every expense with the gun has been a positive one. some of our fondest memories are spent with family and friends. i hope the inclusion of at least one sportsman's perspective in this discussion will provide at least a clear starting point by which we can have an honest discussion about ways to protect our children while also preserving the rights of sportsmen and recreational shooters. i would be first and i don't have all the answers to the complex problems that we we discussing here today, and many and i may not agree with all the policy proposals that will be offered, but i do know t
and the educational system and looking to start their life and begin their role as a rent provider for their family and holding down a job so that they can participate in life as someone capable of paying their bills and buying a house and getting married and raising children and providing education, that number for those people, those young people is over 55%. more than one of every two young people in spain are without employment. on the streets, nothing to do, no job to go to. we see the austerity measures having to be imposed in the united kingdom. italy is in and out of the news in terms of its financial status. there are questions about france, questions about other countries. germany is struggling along with very little growth even though it's seen as an economic provider and dynamo at the level of growth which is so anemic, there are questions being raised as to whether and how much they can do to help the european situation. but even aside from the potentially catastrophic debt bomb that continues to particular away, if we fail to get spending under control in the short term, our economy w
educational for me, mr. president, because i would listen to the concerns of my republican colleagues, and it was a lot different than what i heard in the democratic caucus, and i think we both learned a lot from each other but there was general agreement that there was a real problem in the operations of the united states senate, and that we owed an obligation to take a look at our rules and see whether we couldn't modify the rules so that we can do the type of deliberation, debate and voting that's expected of the united states senate. one of the problems that became very apparent to all of us is that individual senators are able to block the consideration of amendments and bills on the floor of the senate indefinitely, and that's wrong. my colleague from arizona pointed out that you could be in your home state and offer an objection, a bill could be brought to a standstill. that's not how the senate should operate. we should be able to consider legislation and individual senators shouldn't be able to block the consideration of legislation. i could give you hundreds of bills that ha
discretionary spending, i think americans should know what that means. it means education, it means health care, it means the national institutes of health, it means a whole -- it means law enforcement, it means a whole host of things that we care about in our lives everyday, across the board cuts, indiscriminate, without thinking about what the consequences are. only when it comes to the northeast. so i want my colleagues to understand that personally this senator will judge the future by how we are ultimately responded to. we already feel chagrined, but it is what it is. we need to act today. adoption of this amendment would not only create an across the board cut that has consequences to critical things americans broadly define on and does it indiscriminately, but also sets us further back because we would have to go back to the house again, and delays and more delays. well, i want look at the face of any american, whether in my state or anyplace in the country, and say you know, your government has abandoned you, you'll have to wait. i can't look at a business owner who is making a life dec
of photography. a for-profit college owned by the career education corporation. anna wilcox saw a tv ad one day about this so-called brooks institute of photography and decided she would call an inquiry. while the school called her twice a day until she finally enrolled. the recruiter at the school, this career education corporation school, told her that a brooks degree would help her make $85,000 a year as a photographer, so anna enrolled. and when she graduated in 2006, she had a debt of about $170,000. almost all of it in private student loans. anna was 24 years old. $170,000 student debt from this for-profit school. with a variable interest rate that went as high as 18%, her balance just kept growing. her monthly payments on her private student loan now exceed $1,000 a month. her federal loans that she took out as well had low interest rates. she says those payments are reasonable and she can handle them. her parents decided to help her out and cosigned on the loans. now her parents in their 60's are on the hook as well. they have to change their life plans because they wanted to help their
. she was doing everything she could to educate the many children in the camp. many of the syrian children have not gone -- have now gone two years knowing little else but war and misery and homelessness, losing friends and families and the ideal pray for radicals. this woman warned us that the syrian children and her words would seek revenge on those that did not help syria in its hour of greatest need. conflict has gone now for nearly two years. many americans assumed that by now a sun would have left power in the violence would have ended. it is not. 60,000 people are dead, and there is no end in sight. there is a dire need to restart the conversation and the congress across the country about america's role and responsibility in helping the syrian people. at eight of us would agree that at the center of this conversation is the realization that the indiscriminate and escalating use of airpower is one factor among all others that enables them to continue this onslaught against the syrian people. if you wish to be relevant to the conflict we must have a serious debate about how r
